"What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael" — NYC PREMIERE

Pauline Kael is among the most famous and divisive film critics of all time. Her praise helped uplift the careers of Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese and others, while her putdowns left lasting wounds. Raised in a family of Jewish chicken farmers, she was a pioneering woman in a male chauvinistic world. This nuanced portrait captures her complexity while revisiting late-20th-century cinema through her lens, using ample film clips, never-before-seen archival interviews and her writings voiced by Sarah Jessica Parker.

Screening will be followed with an extended conversation with director Rob Garver, film critics David Edelstein (New York magazine), Stephanie Zacharek (TIME), Eric Kohn (IndieWire) and guest moderator Annette Insdorf, Columbia University film professor.
